Western Health is advising the public that visitor restrictions have been lifted at Western Memorial Regional Hospital.
The restrictions were in place due to a number of patients with influenza-like illness.
The health authority is still urging anyone who has influenza-like symptoms, including cough, fever, runny nose, and headache not to visit any of Western Health’s facilities.
People with any of these symptoms should rest at home, drink fluids, practice proper hand washing with water and soap, and if the symptoms persist, contact their physician. To prevent the spread of infection, the health authority is also asking the public to was or sanitize their hands when entering or leaving any of Western Health's facilities.
